On November 1, Lauren and Chris were married in a ceremony and reception at The Lyman Estate in Waltham, MA. This beautiful location was perfect for Lauren and Chris' intimate wedding, where they were surrounded by only their closest friends and family.
Lauren put a lot of thought into the details of her wedding day. The pink and gold theme could be seen throughout the day, including her gold shoes; pink flowers in the bouquets and centerpieces; and pinks, peaches and greens in the menu and the signs stationed around the event. The tables were also immaculately set with gorgeous, gold-trimmed plates and glasses. And at the end of the ceremony, Lauren and Chris had their guests throw red and pink paper hearts as they walked down the aisle. Kate Brindley was my second shooter for the day, and she did a great job of photographing some of these amazing details.
The morning of the wedding, I was with Lauren and her bridesmaids as they got ready. At the same time, Kate was with Chris and his guys. Lauren gave her mother a very personal gift, and her mother was so touched that she came over to give Lauren a big hug and kiss in the middle of Lauren getting her make up on. It was one of my favorite moments from the day! I also love the image of Lauren and her father beginning their descent down the aisle.
The reception was stunning, and everyone joined in to dance and celebrate the night away. It was obvious that Lauren and Chris’ friends and family truly loved them and were excited for them!
Lauren shared with me how she felt about the wedding day:
"Just magical. Everything was perfect and we were so happy to be celebrating our relationship with close friends and family. We had always wanted an intimate wedding, and with a 30-person guest list, we feel we really achieved that. Our DJ, Kevin, kept everyone up and dancing, which is really impressive considering the size of the guest list. Chris and I were so happy--we will cherish that day forever."
Congratulations, Lauren and Chris! Thank you for including me in your special day!
